Volunteer story by Ha Nguyen

Tell us about yourself

I have recently completed my Master course of Public Health and Health Administration and I am currently working as a COVID-19 administrative officer.

In my leisure time, I love to cook, go to museums or art exhibitions, or just simply enjoy watching people.

 What inspired you to become a LiverWELL volunteer?

Throughout my academic course, I had many chances to work on hepatitis-related projects. And one day, I encountered LiverWELL when looking for a reference for my studies and got to know about a friendly volunteering environment through the website that prompted me to join the team.

 Please describe one of your favorite LiverWELL experiences or moments.

I was firstly impressed by the online training session as I was provided substantial beneficial knowledge about hepatitis. The gathering event was the second favourite experience where our volunteers had a chance to meet up in person and felt appreciated by the organisation.

Particularly, when involved in some projects with LiverWELL, I had time to reflect on what I have studied in university and eventually understand how to manage health promotion programs in practice.

 What tips do you have for new volunteers?

Be attentive and enthusiastic in every project by contributing your meaningful volunteer service to create better change for the community. Not only you’ll gain new skills and expand your networking, but what you’ll get back will be immeasurable 😊
